New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo shared his thoughts on TIDAL’s assistance in the wake of such loss. “After seeing the terrible devastation in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands firsthand, it is clear that those affected by these natural disasters need our help more than ever,” he said. “We in New York are putting the full weight of our resources behind recovery efforts, and I am grateful to TIDAL X: Brooklyn and its sponsors for joining us and helping to deliver much-needed goods to people in desperate need. We must do everything we can to help these communities rebuild, and I encourage all New Yorkers to join us in our efforts.”
